The Land I & II - Ruth Andre

"The Land I and II"
Each Painting 16"x16"x2" Oil on Cradled Panel
by Ruth Andre

While in Jackson, Wyoming my husband and I had an opportunity to tour a beautiful contemporary home. We both loved the design of both the exterior and interior of the house. Approaching this lovely home was softened by lush fescue grasses and natural metal fencing. The house was a relaxed mixture of textures and color. A handwoven textile and colorful paintings adorned the walls. The furniture colors and cabinetry were subdued but represented the surrounding landscape giving a feeling of sun and shadow. The home tour was a true highlight of our trip that we totally enjoyed. The two paintings above have been in progress for a few days and as they submerged from their painted form the colors of a day in Jackson came forward. It has been, "A Painting Day".

I really like the purples with the golds in this one.
